The Domino Effect

If global economy came to a sudden stop what would be the effect on families worldwide? People in different countries or continents might not seem to be interrelated but there is more than meets the eye and we might be more connected than we sometimes like to think.

A Christmoose Story (Midden in de Winternacht)

Now that’s a fine mess! A talking moose has just landed in Max’s barn and it seems that Santa has also crashed somewhere in the winter scenery. Why on earth does this have to happen now of all times, when Christmas is just around the corner and there are so many presents to deliver? Max’s clever sister, his anxious mother and determined grandmother all have to help to save the holy celebration. But they can’t fly anywhere without the indispensable stardust, and there’s none to be found. A neighbour who has set his mind on killing the elk is suspected of being responsible for the missing stardust. And then there’s Santa who is very much the worse for wear; he needs rescuing from the secure unit of a lunatic asylum because he’s been insisting that he delivers presents down chimneys.
